James Buckley has hinted he wants to film another series of 'The Inbetweeners'.
The actor says he misses his co-stars of the E4 growing pains comedy, Simon Bird, Joe Thomas and Blake Harrison, because of all the larks they used to get up to on set.
He told radio station XFM: "There's no other job like it, every other job's quite serious.
"If we behaved like this on other jobs we'd get fired.
"They sort of let us muck about because then they capture the banter that you see on the screen. Whenever we have any contact, we just love to talk to each other because we're not on set with each other every day anymore.
"But I'm missing them, I'm missing those boys.
"I've said no in the past [to doing another show] but I do miss them."
'The Inbetweeners' ran for three series in 2008, 2009 and 2010. A successful film was also made in 2011, 'The Inbetweeners Movie', which went on to become the highest-grossing British comedy of all time.
But Simon, 28, has previously said he feels the cast are too old to play teenagers for another series of the show.
He said: "We call ourselves the Peter Pans of Channel 4, because we've been trying to hold back the years for so long.
"The truth is, we got away with it during the early days of the show because we were playing people who weren't much younger than we were.
"But the whole of 'The Inbetweeners' story - from series one right through to the movie - has spanned about a year, while we've all aged four years. It's becoming a bit too much of a stretch."
